Putting Last Things First

The Priorities of this Administration never cease to amaze me. [Opinion]

Instead of worring about helping the poor & sick get out of debt, they push the bankruptcy bill. Instead of worrying about polluters, or the health of Americans, they pass the tort reform bill. Instead of worrying about actually providing for retirement, they push the social security reform bill. WTF!?!?!?! LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich: "Even as we're constantly told we're in a war for "freedom" abroad, freedom in our culture at home has been under attack ever since." [NYT]

Dowd: "While the president and the neocons try to remake the Middle East to help future generations, can't they find a little time to remake our security to protect this generation?" [NYT]

You mean, there are some people that actually care we're running HUGE deficits???
"Uneasy about the potential impact on the ballooning federal deficit, the Senate Republicans called for $70.2 billion in tax cuts over the next five years, as opposed to the estimated $100 billion the White House is seeking. " [NYT]

Killing Alaska-for a few barrels of oil. "A long-cherished Republican goal to open an Alaskan wildlife refuge to oil drilling advanced in a Senate committee on Thursday, and Democrats are not sure they can muster enough votes to kill the plan in the full Senate next week."
